Use Felted Wool or All Cotton!
Felted wool makes these darling mittens just right for winter. The woolly texture reminds us of those we used to wear while playing in the snow as kids.
However, if you prefer cotton, you can make these whimsical coasters all from quilting cotton. They’ll be just as charming and fusible applique means all the stitching can be done by machine.
The felted wool is stitched down by hand. Even so, it’s a relatively quick project to make a set of four coasters to use or to give.
Designed by Chris Malone, the coasters are 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
You’ll find the pattern for the “Woolly Mittens Coaster Set” in the Winter 2017 issue of Quilter’s World.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
